    Plant Profile: Dandelion

    Florida School of Holistic Living’s Plant of the Month for May 2022 when i was a little girl my mama said to me,what’s your favorite flower, darling? i’ll get you a seed.i said, dandelion! dandelion! that one’s so pretty!she said, child, that one’s not a flower; that one’s just a weed.i still loved those mellow yellow petals anyway.what that thing they say about a rose by any other name?then my fragile flower turned into a ball of gray,so i took a breath and made a wish and blew them all away. Gabbie Hanna, Dandelion
